Wedding at the St Stephens Club, London

Kate and Guillaume held their wedding ceremony and the wedding reception at the St Stephens Club in London. Tucked away behind Bird Cage Walk and within a few hundred yards of Buckingham Palace this intimate venue was a perfect backdrop for the Bride and Grooms Anglo French celebrations.

The Bride arrived with her Father at 4pm wearing a beautiful dress made for her by designer Ritva Westenius. After the ceremony the Groom and his new wife went across the road to St James Park for a stroll to the delight of the amazed tourists.

The wedding Breakfast was held in the Club's dining room amongst some fabulous floral decorations created by Mark Walker and at the end of the meal the couple cut their cake which had been made by Pat-a-Cake Pat-a-Cake.

The whole day was organised by Wedding Planner Siobhan Craven-Robins. Siobhan and I have been trying to work together for a long time so it was nice to finally be available to photograph one of her weddings.

The newlyweds are now off on honeymoon to Greece with their daughter Alice.

Wedding in Essendon, Hertfordshire

Music, fun and flowers seemed to sum up this wedding. Sian and John named their tables after various music festivals and had signs and invites to match.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Bride's local family church, St Mary the Virgin in Essendon and as well as the church choir the congregation were entertained by the Christian Meleke Choir who sang 'Amazing Grace' as the Bride arrived, 'Oh Happy Day' as the couple left the church and during the ceremony a number of songs one of which was 'River Deep Mountain High'.

The reception was held at Sian's parent's farm where one of the fields was set up as a camp site; fortunately we didnt get any of the traditional 'Glastonbury weather' and the day was sunny and dry.

As part of the evening entertainment there were two live bands one of which was a Samba band who played for an hour and had everybody dancing along.

The happy couple are now on honeymoon in Cornwall.
